AT least 30 unknown gunmen at the early hours of Sunday, stormed the Olokuta Medium Security Prison in Akure, Ondo State capital and set free about 175 inmates.
Officials of the prison reportedly fled to the bush following the bombardment.
The gunmen reportedly barricaded the Akure-Ore Expressway where the prison was located for hours while the operation lasted.
Ironically, reports had it that some of the escapees were later re-arrested by the security agents at some of the brothels within the capital city and other neighbouring villages.
